More Weeds

Pictures : I like when I take Macro shots and see things I don’t see with just my eyes. Maybe I should see, but my eyes are old, πŸ€”. For example, when standing over the plate of the first shot, I see no yellow what-so-ever and I can’t tell that they are a bit fuzzy.

Note: See P.S. below. Firmware Update : I have run into my first problem with the R7. A firmware update, that is grayed out after about the third or fourth step. It gets to the point of where there is a screen that shows …

Firmware Update
Version 101 to 110
Cancel or OK

The above may not be exact, but it gets to a point something like above and, the OK is grayed out. I can’t find a way around it. Tech support, I guess. I can’t find anything online about it. If there is anyone with any insight, I will sure listen to them. Meanwhile, everything is working fine, best I can tell.

Have a nice day Folks

P.S. Hey, I found my solution to updating the firmware! Weirdly enough all the steps have been done with a touchscreen up to that point, but there I had to make the mechanical selection and not a touchscreen Selection, I just had to use the direction buttons on the camera itself, problem solved.

I found the solution on DPreview from, for a different camera, but it worked for this camera too.
Firmware Update solution

Don’t look like it had anything I needed, but I like keeping things updated anyway.

    1. Thank you, Karla. I hope your holiday with Family and friends was good. Karla, I just read your last post, I heard a lot of emotions in that post, but there were things that stuck with me as I read. Your strength of character, your grace as a human being, your deep concern for others, your ability to move gracefully forward, and your ability to keep emotionally in touch with others, and these are just a few of the good things I heard you saying.
      I think that you must be an amazing person. All my best to you, Karla ☺️.


    1. I did the update from the camera. All I did from the computer was to download the firmware and copy it to the SD card. It was just a simple operator error on my part, after loading it to the camera πŸ€”!
      Do you connect your camera to the computer to update? I was reading that you could do that, but I have always just did it from the SD card.


        1. Nice to know that there is more than one way to update the camera. I have downloaded and installed most of the software from Canon’s website, but have yet to open any of it for anything.
